2006 Sl65

4 months ago I saw one of this at the Mercedes dealer for $210,000.00 USD.
yesterday I saw another 2006 with 6,000 miles on the clock for $ 129,000.00
the car is a black beauty sitting at a local imports dealer, most of this cars come from California, There is a $81,000.00 USD difference in between this cars.
Is the depreciation that high on this model? Maybe it needs a proffesional body-man to look at it and a car-fax history, this car looks flawless from where is park, it just blows my mind about the difference in prices. $13.50 USD you loose for every mile you drive them, at 20,000 miles the car will be worth less than $0.00 USD.

The depreciation is crazy, but not as bad as you think. The dealers buy the SL65's for 79,000 from Mercedes Benz. Around here, you can buy a brand new SL65 from the dealer for 159,000. So you factor in that they are selling for 129,000 you are only out 30,000.... I know its alot of money, but for the type of car its not alot of money.
